Information, ideas, tips…the articles for professional advisers which I spotted this week that generate fresh thinking or a deeper understanding of issues are provided here as a quick readers digest for professionals who are looking ahead.


These are the highlights from the week that you should stop and read, as they are the best I’ve seen recently.
